Chinese-quality components on an Aston-Martin. Unbelievable. And in the accelerator linkage yet. Priceless.

Some car company executives need to be ex-ed. Axed.

I'd rather have it done at their factory actually, given that it sounds like an important part.

Bet they do give you something though, not escorts, but something.

Welcome to the future where you're just buying a brand, and who knows where and what it's really made up of.

Oversell then outsource.

When you don't have boots on the ground in your supply chain, this happens. Especially in China.
